N: Rich, milk chocolate, dark berries, but also peach, nectarine, butterscotch, wispy smoke, pencil shavings, creamy fudge and tobacco leaf
P: Chocolate orange, Mexican chocolate, dark berries, but also some peach and thoughts of something tropical. Some Caramilk bar as well
F: Slightly spicy, milk chocolate, chocolate orange, bergamot, creamy, long, pencil lead
Thoughts: Fantastic laddie, not quite the old school sherry bomb the marketing team wants you to believe it is, but certainly some nice elements are there. It’s got lots of fruit and chocolatey notes with some tobacco leaf, pencil shavings and wispy smoke, but to me it leans more towards the bourbon cask notes. Nevertheless, the casks became good friends and it all works very nicely.
